Hudson Mohawke to play Concord Music Hall in Chicago with The-Dream on November 11, 2015

Silver Wrapper presents Hudson Mohawke with special guest The-Dream on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at Concord Music Hall.

Hudson Mohawke (Ross Birchard) has been on a meteoric rise the last few years, working with some of the biggest names in hip hop, pop and dance music but everything started in a bedroom in Glasgow when he was barely a teenager. From age 15 he was an award winning scratch DJ producing happy hardcore on cracked software – he came to define a generation of electronic fusion producers but unlike many of his peers, Hudson has matured into a fully fledged contemporary hitmaker continually working to break the mold. Hudson Mohawke recently released his new album, Lantern, with a brand new video for Warriors, and you can listen to the whole album from the Scottish producer here.

Terius Youngdell Nash, better known by his stage name The-Dream, is an American RnB and pop record producer, singer, and songwriter. He has also co-written songs, including songs with Dear Jayne, “Me Against the Music” (2003) for Britney Spears, “Umbrella” (2007) for Rihanna, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” (2008) for Beyoncé and “Baby” (2010) for Justin Bieber. He has released five studio albums in 2007 to 2013, and currently just dropped the brand new “The Crown” EP. Listen here.

Doors at 8:00 PM. Show at 9:00 PM. Ages 18+.

Hot Buttered Rum returns to Chicago on September 23, 2015 at 1st Ward / Chop Shop

Silver Wrapper presents Hot Buttered Rum on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 at 1st Ward / Chop Shop.

Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to. The band’s three songwriters — Nat Keefe, Erik Yates and Aaron Redner — spin tales about the good times, the bad times, and the roads in between, and belt them from the heart in three-part harmony. Bryan Horne’s athletic standup bass and Lucas Carlton’s tasteful percussion combine with the acoustic instruments to create what is California’s own acoustic music. Hot Buttered Rum’s years of touring have given the band the chance to work and play with a wide cross-section of musicians, people like Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, and Robert Earl Keen. Seasoned veteran Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), acoustic guru Mike Marshall, and left-coast rocker Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Nicki Bluhm) have all produced studio albums for the band. Each guided HBR towards the next step in its evolution. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love, and it has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country: Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning’s Hideout, String Summit, Grey Fox, All Good, High Sierra, Wakarusa, and many more.

Doors at 8pm. Show at 9pm. Ages 18+.

Aer brings “One of a Kind Tour” to Concord Music Hall in Chicago on September 25, 2015

Silver Wrapper presents Aer with special guests Cody Simpson and Chef’special on Friday, September 25th, 2015 at Concord Music Hall.

In 2010, two friends from Wayland, Massachusetts came together to form a band that
combined all of their musical interests, from rap to reggae, indie rock to pop. David von
Mering and Carter Schultz, better known as Aer, haven’t looked back since. With the release of their skillful debut album The Bright Side in 2012, Aer set the bar
high with a slew of innovative and engaging songs fitting of summer sunshine and
crashing waves. Fans and critics alike took notice, with the album earning the No. 1 spot
on the iTunes Albums Chart and a spot on the Billboard Top 200. With performances across North America and Europe with artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Slightly Stoopid, Action Bronson, Iggy Azalea, ASAP Rocky and Hoodie Allen, Aer’s presence in the music world has steadily grown, readying their fans for their third studio album,One of A Kind set for release later this summer. The album’s first single, “I Can’t Help It,” released May 18, 2015, is a good representation of Aer’s feel-good sound, one that has grown and matured alongside the duo.

Doors at 6pm. Show at 7pm. All Ages.

Tipper and Friends to play Three Nights in Chicago, IL at Thalia Hall this August 21-23, 2015

Silver Wrapper and Infrasound present Tipper and Friends for Three Nights in Chicago, IL from Friday, August 21, 2015 to Sunday, August 23, 2015 at Thalia Hall.

After last year’s sold out show at Portage Theatre, Tipper returns to Chicago in the more intimate confines and beautiful setting that is Thalia Hall. Modeled after the Prague Opera House and built in 1892, the Hall was a beacon of the neighborhood community and existed as one of the most ornate theaters of its times. It was granted landmark status in 1985, but was closed to the public in the 1960s and remained virtually untouched until the end of 2013 when the new owners began work on it. It has been restored to its original charm and character, but also treated acoustically to bring a wide array of music, community, and artistic events to the neighborhood it serves.

In celebration of such an inspiring undertaking, Tipper and Friends are going to spend 3 nights at Thalia Hall presenting three different experiences across each night. Friday night will feature a Tipper Downtempo or Journey Set, with support from Ion Driver and visual manipulations by the esteemed Johnathan Singer. Saturday night Tipper will present an Uptempo Set and turn off the visuals, inviting everyone to put on their dancing shoes and spend the night smiling at each other instead of the stage. Sunday night Tipper changes gears again, and for only the 3rd time ever (and first time in the Midwest) present his sit down Ambient Set, encouraging everyone in GA to bring pillows or cushions to get comfy and absorb the visuals by Johnathan Singer matching Tipper’s ambient flow.

Invited as the sole artist in residence for this occasion, XAVI will be Live Painting all three nights and also produce an exclusive show poster which he will reveal closer to the event. There are everything from seated balcony to opera box seats, friendly staff, and great sound on offer for Tipper’s only Chicago area show for 2015. All 3 shows are 17+. See you there.

Doors at 8:00 PM Friday and Saturday, 7:00 PM on Sunday. Ages 17+.
